Question 13 of 20
0.0/ 1.0 Points
Accepted characters: numbers, decimal point markers (period
or comma), sign indicators (-), spaces (e.g., as thousands separator, 5 000),
“E” or “e” (used in scientific notation). NOTE: For
scientific notation, a period MUST be used as the decimal point marker.
Complex numbers should be in the form (a + bi) where
“a” and “b” need to have explicitly stated values.
For example: {1+1i} is valid whereas {1+i} is not. {0+9i} is
valid whereas {9i} is not.

on a personality profile.

A sample of 150 students at a State University was taken
after the final business statistics exam to ask them whether they went partying
the weekend before the final or spent the weekend studying, and whether they
did well or poorly on the final. The following table contains the result.

Did Well on Exam Did Poorly on Exam
Studying for Exam 60 15
Went Partying 22 53
If the sample is a good representation of the population,
what percentage of the students in the population should we expect to spend the
weekend studying and do poorly on the final exam? Place your answer in the blank, rounded to 2
decimal places. Do not use a percentage sign (%). For example, 44.44 would be a
